Joe,

    Nice choice!  Might I suggest Candy Apple Red with wide black racing stripes finely outlined in white?  Nothing to extravagant, mind you.

 

I will watch fer sure!

Nice and may I suggest a matching camel color theme cockpit.  And remember to accessorize

Thanks fellas. Camel color theme..........e5037457_zpsameexuws.gif.

 

The seat and seat belts have taken me longer than I have wanted but I've got it to a point that I think I can show some progress now. I have to pick out some aluminum details on the seat belts with a toothpick but here's a pick just to show some progress anyways. I still have the armrests to go on this bad boy so I aint finished with the construction of the seat yet.

Pilots seat is done and installed. I'll be working on the back wall where the battery and other details are and working my way forward after I take care of the nose gear bay on the bottom side of this whole assembly. Here's the progress as of this morning though: ( The seat belts are actually dirtier than they look in the picture-here they look practically brand new....wow)

Ok gang I've got some pics I think are worth sharing so you guys know I'm still building an aircraft. lol . I decided to do before and after photos because just looking at it the cockpit at first doesn't really look like I've mad a lot of progress. There are a few items more however and yes....................it's been tedious.

This is where I left off:

and this is where I'm at now:

Looks great. You're aware that Fly also does the Arado in 1:32 scale?

 

Thanks Kevin. Yes sirree I know about that kit. I think that there's another one available too but the manufacturer escapes me  at the moment. There's no way I could build something like that because of my lack of display cases that big. lol!

Joe, the only other one I know would be MDC's Ar 234. A full resin kit, designed by artist Radu Brinzan. Having seen both kits I tend to say Radu's is the better one, imho. I have got my hands on it, so, if you would be interested in details, you know where to find me!
